Asana is a project/task management and collaboration platform that is available for a fee to SMU departments upon request. This cloud-based system provides powerful tools to manage projects, coordinate team resources, share files and information, and more. From simply managing daily tasks to the largest and most complex projects, Asana can make things easier.
